Guest Accommodation

A guest is anyone who does not have a contract for the room in which they are staying.  This includes non-students, students who live off campus and students who have a contract for another room on campus.

A Guest in your Room

There is no charge if you would like a guest to stay in your room.  Just click on the Request a Guest Visit button on the KLE Accommodation Portal (see below) in advance of their stay.  However if you would like a camp bed with bedding there is a £15 charge (a minimum of 1 working day's notice is required for this).  Please note that we are not able to provide camp beds in premier en-suite rooms.

Please note that guests are not permitted in student bedrooms for the first two weeks of any semester since these are settling in periods with the arrival of many new students.

If a guest is staying in the halls of residence but is not registered, this will be treated as a breach of regulations and the student may be disciplined and fined.  It is important that the University knows who is in the building so that we can notify the fire service in the event of an evacuation. 

The maximum duration of any stay must not be more than 3 nights.  There cannot be concurrent visits of this duration without a break of at least 3 nights.  The halls of residence are provided for students who are studying at Keele.  If you require accommodation for others on a longer term basis i.e. family/partner, you should contact the Student Accommodation Office to discuss alternatives.  These procedures still apply if the guest has a room elsewhere on campus.

If you need a camp bed and bedding or would like to book a separate room please contact us.

Guest Rooms

We are able to offer guest accommodation in a campus room to students who live off campus (subject to availability).

If you would like to make a booking please complete the Temporary Accommodation Booking Form ‌, and return it to us via email and then contact us  to make a payment. Payment should be made by debit or credit card at the time of booking.

Key Deposit

There is a £30 deposit for keys and the payment is required at the time of booking and is refunded after keys are returned.   If the refund is not collected at the time of vacating the room, this can be claimed at a later date but no longer than 6 months after the booking was made.

Vacating a Room

Rooms must be vacated by 9.00 a.m. and if keys are not returned by this time, the £30 key deposit will be forfeited.  Failure to vacate a room by 11.00 a.m. will result in additional accommodation fees.  For guests who leave outside normal office hours (Monday Friday, 9.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.)  there is a box outside the Security Reception in the Darwin Building for return of keys.

Regulations

You are responsible for the actions of any guests you book in.  Disciplinary action may be taken if your guest breaks any regulations.

Guests are required to evacuate the building if the alarm sounds.

If a guest is staying in the halls of residence but is not registered, this will be treated as a breach of regulations and the student may be disciplined and fined.  It is important that the University knows who is in the building so that we can notify the fire service in the event of an evacuation. 

The maximum duration of any stay must not be more than 3 nights.  There cannot be concurrent visits of this duration without a break of at least 3 nights.  The halls of residence are provided for students who are studying at Keele.  If you require accommodation for others on a longer term basis i.e. family/partner, you should contact the Student Accommodation Office to discuss alternatives.  These procedures still apply if the guest has a room elsewhere on campus.
